Kanye West Jumps Back Into The Spotlight With 'Late Night' Medley

Kicking things up a notch since Monday, on Tuesday Late Night with Seth Meyers included a memorable appearance by Kanye West. Yeezy performed a career-spanning medley, including his most iconic songs – Jesus Walks, Touch The Sky, Stronger, Heartless, All of the Lights, Mercy and Black Skinhead. West’s appearance included an interview with Meyers, during which the rapper was remarkably mellow and charming. Then he unleashed a torrent of classic West stage shenanigans, followed by the obligatory mic drop.

West came on Meyers' second night (dubbed by the host "Seth Meyers: Deuces") to liven things up.

Of course Kanye, self-proclaimed creative genius that he is, isn’t just resting on old laurels. West is currently working, or will work on a film, written by Brett Easton Ellis especially for him. Ellis explained that he had been reluctant to take on the project at first, but then had his mind changed last summer.

Also on Ye's schedule: a film by Bret Easton Ellis.

"He came and asked me to write the film. I didn't want to at first. Then I listened to 'Yeezus'. It was early summer last year and I was driving in my car,” Ellis recalled. "He'd given me an advance copy and I thought, regardless of whether I'm right for this project, I want to work with whoever made this. So fuck it, I said yes. And that's how it happened. That was seven or eight months ago. We'll see what happens."

Kanye kept it short and sweet while promoting his Late Night appearance.
